10 Holy Haiku and Senryu Poems

Ronald Bunch 1982 (Grand Rapids)



Routing Evil:
Over plains ink prints
Tales of God routing evil.
Jesus finds and saves.

Passion Sunday:
The passion of Christ.
Jesus was hanged on a cross.
Truly this was God.

Blind Man:
A blind man washes
Clay in the pool of Siloam.
Now he see's the light.

Thirsty Israelites:
Thirst in the desert.
Moses taps water from rock.
They now drink refreshed.

The Transfiguration:
Peter, James and John
Are taken up a mountain.
Jesus does transform.

The Light of Jesus:
We bless our candles.
Light has come into the world,
His name is Jesus.

Be Perfect:
Be holy for God.
Have love for your enemies
As the perfect Christ.

Free in Christ:
Jesus came to free
Us from the power of sin,
Death and selfishness.

The Salt of the Earth:
Having mercy and
 Pursued for God's righteousness.
You are now earth's salt.

The Walls of Jericho:
Walking by the walls.
On the seventh day it fell
With trumpets and shouts.
